Cloud Fax Services for Digital Processes
Faxing is an integral part of many business processes. As a tested and standardized technology, faxing is easy to use and can be integrated in almost any system landscape. Faxing is secure and immune to viruses. Faxes can be traced from the time they are sent to the time they are received and are legally binding. And faxing is digital.
Retarus’ innovative cloud fax services help you digitize analog business processes simply and optimize sustainable workflows. Retarus Cloud Fax Services are essential to your migration to All IP and support you in consolidating and simplifying your infrastructure. Once you are connected to the Retarus Enterprise Cloud, you benefit from the scalability you need, maximum reliability and the highest level of security. At the same time, with online fax services your investment- and process-related costs are up to 70% less than those for self-operated fax machines, servers and fax infrastructures.

14 Advantages of Retarus Cloud Fax Services
Reduce your fax transmission failure rate by up to 10% and reduce the administrative costs involved in manually processing your faxes. Retarus' NeverBusy Technology ensures that multiple faxes are never sent to the same recipient simultaneously. Thanks to this technology, even high volumes of incoming faxes are delivered immediately—no busy lines or capacity bottlenecks.
Scalable and Flexible
Eliminate over- and under-utilization of capacity with our online fax solution and API. Regardless of whether you send 1,000 faxes today and one million tomorrow—the Retarus Enterprise Cloud provides you with the exact bandwidth you need at any given point in time without a single fax machine or traditional desktop-fax software in your office.
OCR and Barcode Recognition
Retarus' enterprise fax services enable you to seamlessly integrate faxing into your workflows. Read out information or barcodes from incoming documents with the Retarus OCR and barcode recognition feature and then use customized smart routing options to presort, forward, store, or process the documents automatically according to your rules.
Monitoring and Analysis
Check the status of your fax communications at any time using dashboards and detailed reports in the web-based Retarus Enterprise Administration Services Portal. In real time or in user-defined periods. For both outgoing and incoming faxes.
Security and Compliance
Rely on maximum security. The Retarus Enterprise Cloud, with its global data centers, fulfills the most stringent country and industry-specific requirements for data protection and data security. For example, the GDPR, PCI DSS, or HIPAA.
Ensure full compliance with industry-specific or statutory regulations. Retarus' long-term archiving helps your fax communications comply with the most stringent data security and integrity requirements.
